China Security & Surveillance Technology to Acquire Santachi Video Technology

SHENZHEN, China, June 24 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- China Security & Surveillance Technology, Inc. ("China Security" or "CSST" or the "Company") (NYSE: CSR; Nasdaq Dubai: CSR), a leading provider of digital surveillance technology in the PRC, today announced it has signed a letter of intent to purchase 100% ownership in Santachi Video Technology Co., Ltd ("Santachi"), a leading security solutions provider for highways and railways in China for RMB150 million (approximately US$21.9 million based on an exchange rate of USD 1.00 to RMB 6.84). Completion of the transaction is subject to negotiation of a definitive equity transfer agreement that will be subject to a number of closing conditions, including regulatory approval.

Established in 1999, Santachi is devoted to the development, manufacturing, sales, material requisition, custom engineering and post-sale service of a full range of electronic surveillance products and focuses on surveillance solutions for highways and railways nationwide. It has consistently been named one of the country's top 10 security brands, and its products have been deployed in more than 30% of China's highways, according to official statistics in 2006. Santachi is also the first company to bring forward the concept of "Entire Closed-Circuit Television Solutions." Headquartered in Shenzhen, Santachi has subsidiaries in over 30 cities across China, including Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Chengdu, Urumqi, etc. Its security products have also been exported to the United States, Europe, Brazil, Turkey, and other countries.

In addition to its leading position in highway and railway security, Santachi has also won various key government projects including Safe City projects throughout China. Partnering with China Telecom, the biggest state-owned telecommunication enterprise in China, Santachi was awarded the Dongguan City Surveillance Project, which included the implementation of 8,000 of Santachi's video servers. Santachi also was awarded Chongqing City's Jiu Long Po District Safe City Project, valued at approximately RMB48 million (approximately US$7.0 million).

Mr. Guoshen Tu, Chief Executive Officer of China Security, commented, "We are very pleased to announce the contemplated acquisition of Santachi Video Technology, as this transaction will further expand and deepen our Safe City business. Santachi's strong execution capability for large scale Safe City projects complements our core strengths, while its leading position and expertise in highways and railways can accelerate our goal of integrating Safe City projects with major infrastructure projects. We believe that the Chinese government's $586 billion stimulus package and accelerated pace of investments in further expanding and upgrading the nation's vast highway and railway network will provide additional opportunities for our business throughout the next several years.

"The Santachi opportunity represents our continued efforts to expand our market leadership in China's security and surveillance industry by expanding our portfolio of integrated solutions and services. As we execute our strategic growth plan, we aim to further consolidate our dynamic industry and to deliver strong, sustainable, long-term financial performance, and ultimately to reward our investors with shareholder value."

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, whic...
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Smart cities have the potential to change our lives at so many levels for citizens: less pollution, reduced parking obstacles, better health, education and more energy savings. Real-time data streaming and the Internet of Things (IoT) possess the power to turn this vision into a reality.

We are given a desktop platform with Java 8 or Java 9 installed and seek to find a way to deploy high-performance Java applications that use Java 3D and/or Jogl without having to run an installer. We are subject to the constraint that the applications be signed and deployed so that they can be run in a trusted environment (i.e., outside of the sandbox). Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rat...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
Digital Transformation (DX) is not a "one-size-fits all" strategy. Each organization needs to develop its own unique, long-term DX plan.

Forrester Research has predicted the IoT will become “the backbone” of customer value as it continues to grow. It is no surprise that retail is ...
